So Grateful

Hi there hope you are all well on this fine Monday morning, it's my 'proper job' work day today, where I go into school and try and help the teachers educate unruly teenagers lol.

Today on the blog I have a technique tutorial for you using embossing powders and a bit of inking.  It's a resist technique which is a lot easier than what it looks. 

So here's the card we're going to make;
You will need;
Pistachio pudding card and ink
Whisper white card
Basic Black card and ink
Clear embossing powder
Clear Versamark pad
Sponge daubers
En Francias stamp

Start with a 6x6 base card in pistachio pudding, cut 2 pieces of basic black 5 3/4" square, one whisper white 5 1/2" square and a piece of whisper white 4 1/2" square.

Matt and layer the 51/2" square of whisper white onto one of your basic black squares and glue this to the inside of your card.
Using the En Francias stamp.  Stamp in basic black ink onto your 4 1/2" square of card.

Using your versamark pad. stamp out the largest flower from the So Grateful stamp set into the middle of your 4 1/2" square of white card.  Cover this with clear embossing powder and heat emboss.

Using a sponge dauber, ink it up with pistachio pudding ink.  Start slowly in circular motions inking your card.  Work your way slowly across your card until the whole thing is inked and your main image is revealed.

Layer your inked image on to your black card and add this to the frount of your base card.  Add some rhinestones to the top left hand corner and a sentiment if you wish.
